Brooke Wilson has a dream of opening a small gite complex for special needs children and for families who have children with terminal diagnosis. To help make their dream a reality they hope to make someone else's dream of a life in the sun a reality with this raffle. The property on offer is a renovated French Farmhouse in South West France. It's location is a mystery as the host only mentions that it's in a picturesque village with a Romanesque church and 40 minutes from Angouleme. No valuation of the property is provided so we've estimated it at £250,000. On reflection we're thinking this may be high when comparing properties for sale in Angouleme.
About The Property
The property is described as a 2 to 3 bed detached farmhouse, but you'd need to partition the main bedroom for it to be a 3 bed. There's a lounge and dining room downstairs with the latter also boasting an "attractive corner kitchen with fitted cupboards". Outside you'll find a large enclosed garden, swimming pool and outbuildings. There are images and a video of the farmhouse on Raffall and we have to say it does look quite attractive. A €2,000 spending money prize plus travel to see the property are included. However there's no mention of taxes and legal fees. We're assuming that the property also will be sold unfurnished.
How To Enter The Competition
To enter the raffle you need to be registered with Raffall. This can be done via Facebook or email login. Once at the house raffle page it's a case of answering a question and purchasing tickets. The question pops up in a window which we found disappeared very quickly. Tickets cost £6.50 each and there's no limit to the number you can purchase. You can purchase online using debit cards. As far as we're aware no donations are going to be made to good causes.
200,000 Ticket Sales
The host hopes to sell 100,000 tickets (total revenue 650,000) to conclude the draw. If insufficient tickets are sold then the winners will receive a share of the compensation amounting to 75% of all ticket sales. All compensation payments are guaranteed and paid directly by Raffall Limited. This should offer more assurance to entrants about the legitimacy of the promotion. Note that you can see the number of entrants only if you've purchased a ticket for yourself.
We like the host's dream of setting up a gite complex but fear that this raffle won't be the key to setting the wheels in motion. A holiday home or new life in France will appeal to many but we're not sure there's enough to spend £6.50 and hit that 100,000 target. Looking at properties in the same area - and assuming our valuation is generous - the ticket target does also seem quite high. As with a lot of Raffall prize draws this one isn't well publicised and as far as we're aware also lacks a social media presence. It's going to need a lot of effort to create a house winner.
